TierPoint Expands Seattle Colocation Data Center

TierPoint, a provider of secured, connected data center and cloud solutions with over 40 colocation data centers in 20 U.S. markets and 8 multi-tenant cloud pods, has announced the expansion of its data center in Seattle’s KOMO Plaza.

The nearly 18,000 square feet data center expansion will include new raised floor, office and support space, featuring fully redundant and generator-backed power; high-efficiency cooling; multi-layer physical security, meeting stringent regulatory compliance standards; and diverse network connectivity through a group of 15 carriers and onramp providers, including AWS Direct Connect.

“We already have commitments from customers for some of the expanded capacity, and additional room to support the robust demand we’re seeing for colocation and cloud solutions in the Pacific Northwest,” said Boyd Goodfellow, Region Vice President, TierPoint. “Seattle is a key market for us and one of the fastest-growing markets for IT and other technology companies in the country.”

TierPoint expects the data center expansion to be completed and available to clients later this year, with the total facility then featuring nearly 3.5 MW of installed critical load capacity, scalable to 5.0 MW.
